I studied Engineering at Oxford for 4 years for an MEng degree, with a third-year project designing beam instrumentation at CERN and a fourth-year project investigating the use of colour constancy for automated vehicles. I started the Integrated Photonics and Electronics (IPES) CDT in October 2014, completing MRes projects on the scattering properties of materials for use in a holographic projector, and a computational holography modelling project.

I'm now researching ways to improve SIM, a super-resolution microscopy technique which uses a structured illumination pattern. 

I also supervise electronics and control theory in St. Catharine's College, and demonstrate the Integrated Electrical Project in the Department of Engineering.
